Thank you so much

I'm so thrilled to recieve 2 blog awards this weekend.
The first one is from  my friend the very lovely Diane.  Such a positive lady who inspires me, with her creations and
'to keep going when the going gets tough.'
Please drop in on her and share some love, and check out her lovely creations.

I'd like to pass this award on to all my followers and to say a
 for taking the time to look at my work and leaving such lovely encouraging comments  MWAH  x

My 2nd award is from my friend lovely LISA JANE who also inspires me with her creations and makes me laugh. Lisa can turn  a bad day in to fun with her comments. Hop over and see her and share some love.

To accept  this award I have to tell you 10 things about myself. 
I said to Lisa mine wouldn't be half as entertaining or as funny as hers (check them out) but here goes.

1 My first and most important love is for my family, they are my life and my reason for getting up in the morning.

2 Apart from loosing my parents which is hard for anyone but you kinda accept it if they have reached a good age, my most sad a devastating time was loosing our brother when he was 26 yrs to a brain tumour.
Being 11yrs older it was like loosing a child too. (Enough of the sad stuff.)

3 Up to starting my blog I would joke with my sister who is by Best Friend and would call myself
Billy Nomates. It's so wonderful to get to know so many lovely people. I'm in awe that I can speak to people on the other side of the world.

4 My favourite books are The Borrowers by Mary Norton. A family of little people who live under the floor boards. Have you ever wondered were all those missing things are?
 I love anything by Catherine Cookson. That leads me to no 5.

5 If I could choose to live in another area in England it would be Tyneside in the north.
 My favourite dialect is geordie.

6 I'm a qualified cook and spent my time serving up lumpy mash, sago pudding, and custard with a skin on it, the things kids hated about school dinners. No really we did a good job, my dinners were nice if you could convice them.

7 I'm a Disney addict so my fav holiday is at Disney World Florida and have the photos to prove it. That's another project on the back burner numerous  scrapbook albums to put them in.
This is turning in to an epic!!!

8  By the time I finish it will be next weekend,
I'm a chocaholic and love belgium  choc sea shells.

9 I hate coffee in any shape or form and smell YUCK!!!

10 Finally if I haven't bored you to sleep, now is my favourite time of year. To see beautiful Magnolia trees and spring flowers just makes my day.

You wouldn't believe how long that took. Thank you Lisa for giving me the headache lol.
I'm going to be a real wimp now and ask if any of my followers  would like to take up the challenge, take the award ( your all amazing!!!) and tell us 10 things about yourself.
Please drop back and let me know so I can read yours.

Loads a hugs have a really special week,
Love Cherie       //*.*\\
